Dennis Schroder opened up about the decision of LeBron James to follow the Lakers on their trip to Phoenix, despite his ankle injury.

Schroder noted that such a decision shows the commitment of James to the franchise.

“In my career, I see people get hurt and not come on the road trip. … You see him on the bench, even though he’s hurt, means a lot to me,” Dennis Schroder told reporters, via Kyle Goon of Southern California News Group.

With LeBron James and Anthony Davis out, the Lakers (28-15) lost to the Suns (28-13) on the road (94-111). Schroder had 22 points, on 8/14 shooting.
